Art & About Sydney: Australian Life

A moment to reflect on how we see ourselves, writ large in a stunning outdoor gallery

Produced by the City of Sydney

As Art & About expands into a twelve month program of art in unusual spaces, festival favourite Australian Life returns with a public gallery of work portraying Australia through the eyes of its people.

Australian Life is a gallery of twenty two thought-provoking photographs, submitted in competition for the $10,000 Australian Life Prize.

To capture the diverse experience of Australian Life, you need a canvas as large as the island we all share; which is why Australian Life presents the finalists in a stunning large-format outdoor gallery at Hyde Park North.
